I am hoping to raise money for materials to start my own small home business. This will be split into two smaller businesses - one selling handmade jewellery, the other handmade and customised baby gifts and accessories. I have some of the basic tools I need (such as a sewing machine, etc) but I need materials to make my products, and will also have to fund hosting for my website as this will be a web-based business.
Being able to work from home and be here for my 2 year old son would be the ideal for me. But due to my partner's upcoming redundancy we have no spare money to get this off the ground. This is my dream but it seems to get further and further away rather than closer.
Every penny anyone can send my way will be so so appreciated. Bank loans are not an option for me, and frankly they don't offer loans small enough for my needs.
